Written statements on a form by a prospective insured about himself, including assets and other personal information. These statements and additional information, such as a medical report, are used by an insurance company to decide whether or not to insure the risk. Falsification or nondisclosure of information may give the insurance company grounds for rescinding a policy that has been issued. Statements in the application are also used to decide on an applicant's underwriting classification and premium rates.
